25 of 32 people found the following review helpful By James L. Kochan on May 28, 2003
Format: Hardcover
In their introduction, the author-artist team note that their book is an attempt, "based upon the best research into original materials and artifacts available at the time of its writing" in order to make a "scientific study" of the clothing worn on this monumental western journey of exploration. Using both primary manuscript and printed primary and secondary sources, as well as period iconography and original artifacts, the book covers the various facets of attire (from uniform coats to legwear and headgear) in great detail, seemingly leaving no stone unturned in their quest. The book is profusely illustrated in color and black/white, the majority of which are reproductions of watercolor or pencil drawings by artist Haynes. Haynes's artwork has both a pleasing style and the attention to detail so necesary in such illustration work (I particularly like his handling of different facial features, such as in his fine depictions of Meriwether Lewis and Sacajawea).
The sheer mass of information and imagery contained in this attractive, hardbound book would lead both casual and many specialist readers to believe that, surely, this must be the "final word" or bible on the subject. Unfortunately this is not the case, as the textual treatment of the subject contains some very serious errors and omissions, the most notable and critical being in the documentation and reconstruction of the artillery and infantry uniform coats and in the military headgear of the commissioned officers and the enlisted artillerymen (which consequently mar the reconstructions of much of the dress shown in Haynes's artwork).

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Elizabeth Clare on August 31, 2006
Format: Hardcover
One of the frustrating things about researching early America is the lack of good graphic images. Aside from stiff formal portraits of the captains, there is little that can tell you visually what it might have been like to be part of the Lewis & Clark Expedition. That's where artists come in, of course. One of the best artists who is rendering images of Lewis & Clark today is Michael Haynes.

It seems kind of funny to imagine guys running around the wilderness wearing those hats, but they really did! Tailor Made, Trail Worn is an exhaustively researched and wonderfully illustrated study of the clothing worn by the men of the Corps of Discovery. Every Lewis & Clark scholar is indebted to Moore and Haynes for this great book.

Format: Hardcover
If you are interested in what the members of the Corps of Discovery looked like, and intriqued by the day to day routine of their lives, this account proves invaluable. Thanks to Moore and Haynes who have unravled, stitch by stitch the fabric of the Expedition and given us a portrait that stands alone.
